Sistema.bio receives accreditation under India’s National Biogas Programme
Sistema.bio biodigesters are now accredited under the National Biogas Programme, which was recently launched in Delhi to encourage the use of biogas as a clean cooking fuel that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and provides organic fertiliser for agriculture.
In addition to the major impacts of biogas plants, with this move, millions of dairy farmers in India will benefit from flexi biogas technology by getting access to sanitation, women empowerment, and the creation of rural employment, according to the company.
The certification was awarded to Sistema.bio following a rigorous field performance evaluation of the biogas plants conducted by Sardar Swaran Singh National Institute of Bioenergy (SSS-NIBE), Kapurthala as per the parameters recommended by the New Biogas Projects Experts Appraisal Committee (NBPEAC) constituted by the MNRE, Govt of India.
Sistema.bio provides a prefabricated-modular biogas plant with a full suite of appliances. In the coming decades, its modern biogas plant design will provide a wide range of benefits for rural livelihood and agricultural development, it said.
Piyush Sohani, managing director of Sistema.bio India, said: “We are delighted to receive this accreditation from the government. It’s a significant step forward not only for Sistema.bio, but also for the Indian biogas industry as it will open the door for the adoption and use of modern biogas technologies in the country.
"In addition to providing clean cooking, biogas technology plays a pivotal role in reducing fossil fuel consumption and improving the quality of life of users. We at Sistema.bio look forward to helping more farmers benefit from our technology which can in turn make a positive contribution to the climate.”
